Since opening in September, On The Danforth Condos has been attracting prospective homebuyers to its presentation centre with its affordable prices, excellent location, and thoughtfully designed layouts. Priced from the mid-$200,000s, the 135-unit residence by DIAM Developments offers a great collection of floor plans that range in size from 436 square feet to 1,032 square feet.
The Queen model suite inside the presentation centre is just one example of the wide selection of floorplans available at On The Danforth. The spacious two bedroom plus den boasts 882 square feet of living space, a functional den off the kitchen and a master bedroom complete with a luxurious ensuite and walk in closet.
“This 882 square-foot, two-bedroom + den model is laid out beautifully and can fit the needs of everyone from a single person to couples and families,” said Carmen Dragomir of esQape Design. “The second bedroom could serve as a guest bedroom, nursery or studio. Owners might use the den as a dining area or home office. These multi-functional spaces make the most of every square foot.”
Visitors will be impressed with the level of standard features and finishes included in the model suite. The layout opens to a gourmet kitchen complete with island and breakfast bar, designer cabinets, and an appliance package including a paneled dishwasher, stainless steel fridge, microwave, canopy style hood fan and a gas range. Other standard features include quartz kitchen countertops and laminate floors.
“People really see the quality,” said Dragomir. “The kitchen island Caesarstone countertop is standard, but the waterfall side panels are upgrades. Other than that, the kitchen features and finishes are standard.”
In order to make the cabinets resemble furniture, the designers chose a dark finish that contrasts well with the light coloured laminate floors. The overall aesthetic creates a bold backdrop for the other furniture and helps the kitchen tie seamlessly with the rest of the open-concept living area.
In designing the rest of the suite, Dragomir and her team went with an eclectic design approach to show homebuyers how they can decorate their living spaces with their existing accessories and collections.
“Empty-nesters and other couples and families often move into a condo having collected items from their travels over the years,” explained Dragomir. “This suite is a great example of how you can combine modern décor grounded in transitional, or even in some cases, traditional items.”
In the living room, the sofa is a contemporary shape with transitional tufting, and the matching coffee and end table have marble tops with transitional curved metal bases. Dragomir also added wall frames behind the furniture to make them stand out.
The effect is echoed inside the two bedrooms where the designers also used wall frames but with opposite colours to illustrate how much flexibility people have to personalize their space while adding interest to each room. The master ensuite is done in a tone-on-tone palette that complements the white, light grey and light taupe used throughout the suite, while the second bath has white cabinetry and a dark charcoal floor tile and wallcovering, to create more contrast.
“The use of neutrals really helps people personalize their surroundings, because they can change their look with splashes of colour in furnishings and accessories,” said Dragomir.
